Hey there.<br><br>
I'm new to this forum. I am a first-time-only-time mother to infant daughter born autumn 2006. I'm in my mid-forties, so I'm probably older than most women on this forum. Highly amused at this "new" movement of natural parenting; as a child of the sixties, I remember it was "new" back then, too.<br><br>
I'm a farmer of fiber sheep with a couple of nice llamas thrown into the mix for comic relief and sheep guarding.<br><br>
I have to admit I have a love/hate relationship with Mothering magazine. 'Fraid I take some of it with a sizeable grain of salt. I hate to see anyone suffer guilt trips over parenting styles; we're all just doing the best we can, when it comes right down to it. Obviously I don't want to see any child suffer at the hands of ignorance, but that's not what I'm referring to. I think you get my drift.<br><br>
Time to go out to the barn and feed the livestock. See you 'round the forum...<br><br>
Sincerely,<br>
Diane H K

Yep, that's pretty literal. I used to drive over to Gill quite a bit, then the bridge washed out on Bascom Road...dang. I drive over (the long way, now) in the summer to pick organic strawberries at Upingil. I survived on those strawberries last summer during the pregnancy from Hades when I couldn't hold down most foods.<br><br>
Do you have any idea of how many folks on the forums are from this county? Has there ever been a Franklin County get-together? Might be fun to do something once the weather gets better...<br><br>
Sincerely,<br>
